Hi, I sent out payslips yesterday as per normal but about 10% of employees for some reason received their payslip as a winmail.dat file and were unable to open. Has anyone experienced this issue and how do I avoid this happening again. Thank you in advance for any help on this.

Hi Antonia,

I've found a KB article with some info on the scenario where winmail.dat files are received rather than the intended attachment.

Check it out here -
Winmail.dat rather than invoice or statement attachment is received by some email recipients.

This is caused by windows updates. I was looking at this issue just yesterday. Its a problem with Outlook. Doesnt seem to matter what version
